Hospitality


When it comes to hospitality lighting - the sky is the limit. Hotels, restaurants, pubs and resort - all vary a lot in concept, purpose, and design, thus lighting for hospitality is a case by case instance. The main focus should fall on the aesthetics of the place and the wellbeing of the guest, though.

For the hotelier, an added focus is the energy efficiency of the entire system - given that guest are not the most careful when it comes to shutting off lights. In addition, an intelligent lighting management system that enables you to adjust lighting according to presence is a huge benefit. Think of all the large areas that are infrequently visited such as long corridors, stairways, gyms or spas.

Projects

1 Minute

1 Minute is a chain of snack shops catering to big office projects. They address the morning and lunch times with a wide range of products – sandwiches, fresh juices, viennoiserie, salads, desserts and snacks, as well as magazines, books and small gifts for busy employees. Greentek Lighting provided the light concept design, the technical project as well as the luminaires for this brand. The general atmosphere required by the client was one of high energy – where people stop for a break, a quick bite or buy some takeaway lunch. This was not a space for lingering. As such, the general average illuminance in this store is very high – about 800 lx. The store is divided into 6 areas that differ by purpose, therefore the illuminance also differs. Cash desks and display racks are highly illuminated – at about 850lx, in order to draw attention to the merchandise. The couch area and the corridors are less illuminated: 550-600lx. Still, being a small footprint store, we used just two types of luminaires – in order to preserve a sense of unity and simplicity. For rack lighting – salty snacks, sweet treats, and healthy choices – we used 13 Chase track spotlights, at 20W, 4000K and a rather narrow beam angle of 30 degrees. Chase is particularly useful for accent lighting – that is for displays that need to stand out against the background general lighting and need to draw shoppers’ attention. For general lighting, over the cash desks, corridors and resting couches – we used Artus, a very elegant versatile luminaire that can be recessed, surface mounted or suspended. We used 27 Artus at 50W and 4000K.

Kuzina

Kuzina is a Greek restaurant that was developed with the famed island of Mykonos in mind. The food is authentic Greek cuisine, the design is Greek and the atmosphere is Greek. The predominant color palette is composed of the deep Mediterranean blue and the light sky blue, balanced with the grays and browns of stone and natural wood. The wood furniture is a mix of Jasper Morrison’s Trattoria and Lightwood chairs, as well as Corvin Cristian YO line. Yet, when we talk about Greece, there is one single defining element – the sun. To bring the sun indoors was the key missing element of the whole concept. And this was our task: to design an unique lighting concept that gives the feeling of the sun shining, no matter the weather outside. For this purpose, we used Chase – a track spotlight, with a very narrow beam angle of 15 degrees.  Over 25 such luminaires were laid out on tracks all around the space, near the walls – all tilted at a precise angle in order to create the impression of parallel rays. The high color rendering index of 90, replicates the saturation and the hues of the décor under natural sunlight. The effects are astounding: on the one hand, the placement of the track near the stone wall gives a wonderful grazing effect, bringing out each imperfection as if the wall was cut out by authentic masons. On the other hand, Chase luminaires were hidden inside a thick straw roof – such that narrow beams of light shine through each straw bundle and fall on the white table tops.
